Saturday Photo: Various Ways to Be Green
La rue Rivard runs through the Plateau Mont-Royal district of Montreal, where people go out of their way to make their tiny front yards green. In these recently-constructed triplexes--featuring signature circular outside staircases--a combination of flamboyant exotic plants and hardy perennials add much green to the streetscape. But the people on this street also recycle! At 8:12 a.m. Wednesday when this picture was taken the recycling truck had already passed, so another touch of green was the empty bins.
